Fun and delightful
This film is about the tug of war between a mother who cannot bear losing her son through marriage, and the daughter in law who does not give in to the mother's manipulative behaviour.

The pacing is quite fast for a romantic comedy, as it squeezes in a romantic comedy in the first half and hour and then the tug of war in the last hour. The psychological games they play are clever and fun. Though there is clear rivalry between Charlie and Viola, it is still conveyed in a light hearted and fun way without hatred or malice. It brings out a great message that differences can eventually be solved through honest communication. I find this film fun and delightful.
